"We were so impressed..."

"We met James at Santana Row Easter festivities.  He was incredibly gracious, kind patient, and took his time to make sure our daughter's request was met, he was totally unfazed by sweltering heat and long line, a total pro. We were so impressed with James that we hired him for our daughter's 4 year old birthday party in the East Bay (Alamo, California).  It was a big ask considering James is based in South Bay, but fortunately for us he was able to accommodate us due to happenstance.  He was a big hit at the birthday party, and the kids loved his magic act.  He went out of his way to make our daughter feel special and included in his act.  After the act he made sure all the kids got a customized balloon, and he even made many extras to handout as party favors when the kids left.  I never got the feeling one time that he was watching the clock, quite the opposite, he was committed to providing memories and a good time.  From a business standpoint he was flexible, easy and pleasant to deal with.. I can't recommend him highly enough.  We were so thankful to have him be a part of the festivities."  Ernesto - Oakland, CA.

"He was phenononal..."

"James performed at my daughter birthday. He was phenomenal. He. Amazing with children; they were super excited and he could not make those balloons fast enough. Both kids and adults very entertained by his act. Best of all, he was super accommodating. I cannot say enough about his performance and how happy and entertained the kids stayed.. I was particularly amazed at how well he was able to "manage" a know-it-all-seen-the-show-know the jokes kid that wasn't playing through. He worked with him and made him part of his show; in a beautiful shivery that showed that kids show business can be hard but it takes the best of them to perform so well." Amir - Sunnyvale, CA

"Highly recommended!"

"James performed for our son's 8th Birthday party recently and the kids (and adults) loved it! The magic show was very entertaining and ran smoothly. He had every kid's full attention the entire time. (That within itself is a magic trick!) Highly recommend."  Stephanie R. - Santa Clara
